Combine that with their love of indie-rock and you have a whole new twist on the indie-rock genre.

BAAM! has a new single coming out December 3rd titled, “For A Moment” and an EP due for release early next year.
Consisting of two guitars, a bass, drums, trumpet, tenor-saxophone and alto-saxophone the guys of BAAM! create sounds that infuse rocking dance numbers with a funky jazz twist making their tunes fun, danceable and catchy.
